I think I can count the people that are surprised at this on on finger.....

YOU'RE OLD, Michael..... go home.

He scored 32 points in that game... It's not him, it's his team.

Can you even make a free throw?

I'm not big on b-ball as I was when I was a kid but why didn't he go back to the Bulls?
 
2001-11-10 05:14:53 AM
Yeah it definitely isn't Jordan. He's still a b-ball god, but 1 b-ball god and a bunch of losers don't make a winning team. Perhaps in time Jordan will be able to shape the rest of this sorry team up, but I don't know if it's likely.
 
2001-11-10 07:20:31 AM
Jordan needs to get his legs back. His shot is flat and he's having trouble finishing on drives, and that's from a lack of spring and elevation. It'll come, not as fast as in the past, but it will. When he came back after his baseball stint, he looked similar to this. Add the fact that this team isn't the Bulls, and the new defensive rules...

He's actually having a better year statisticly at this point (through 5 games)than his last season in the league.

:P

Basket what now? Bah, if it's not hockey, it's CRAP!

...or perhaps nude female mud wrestling. I don't think that would be all that crappy. In fact, it would be rather arousing. Woo Woo...
 
2001-11-10 10:31:28 AM
I read something in the paper on why he chose this team in particular, but I can't remember now - I think he's not looking so much to succeed in the same ways, but to bring a younger team up in the league and instead of making a really good team even better, making a somewhat bad team somewhat competitive.
 
2001-11-10 10:51:22 AM
He's part owner of the Wizards, that's why. It's also a great challenge for him Look how many assholes are condemning him. Teams that usually have a low fan turnout are now selling out. I'd say it's good for the NBA. I stopped watching when he left. College ball is where it's at.
 
2001-11-10 10:51:33 AM
ive never seen the attraction in mud wrestling
jello boxing on the other hand...
 
2001-11-10 10:53:05 AM
I thought he sold his stake in the Wizards.

Oh yeah, and basketball is for pansies. Hockey is where it's at.
 
2001-11-10 11:44:54 AM
Well, whaddya know! Ross Perot was right about that great sucking sound!!

Hockey is boring.

A bunch of Canadians sliding around on ice slapping a slice of rubber around until it gets stuck in that sideways laundry basket.

The sport is way too random for me.
 
2001-11-10 12:34:58 PM
Not Jordans fault?

Considering he was 13 of 30 from the field, THREE TIMES the shots as the next person, I'd say he had a part in it.
 
2001-11-10 01:30:58 PM
Yeah, all of you Jordan lovers to shut the fark up. When he was on the Bulls scoring 30 a game taking 40 shots, everyone was saying "but they're winning, but they're winning" okay, we had to accept that. Now he's taking 40 shots and they're losing, he shoots 3X as many shots as anyone else on the team and his team is losing, losing, losing

And just as I had no arguement to winning winning winning, there really isn't much arguement to losing losing losing
 
2001-11-10 01:36:33 PM
If you don't like Jordan, you're not a true fan of the game. It's that simple. Check back mid season when he has his legs back.
 
2001-11-10 01:46:52 PM
New, you can bite my ass. Micheal Jordan RULES. There are things that have to be taken into consideration.
1. It's early in the season.
2. There are a lot of inexperienced players on the Wizard's team.
3. Micheal's not in top condition, but that will change.
4. No matter how talented a player is, he cannot carry the whole team.
The main thing about Micheal Jordan is that even when he's not at the top of his game, the man is STILL pretty goddamned amazing. I don't know of any other player that can be out of condition and still score 32 farking points in a game. No, he's not a kid anymore and the knees are giving him problems, but he can still play his ass off.
Compare the Bulls line up and the caliber of the players on that team with the Wizards and the caliber of players on that team. Micheal didn't have a bunch of young, inexperienced players that he had to coach as he played when he was playing for the Bulls. Give MJ a farking break.
He's working his ass off and why? Not for the goddamned money, but because he LOVES to farking play and he's STILL goddamned good at it.
You people really farking piss me off at times.
 
2001-11-10 01:56:25 PM
Thank you Doofus. As I stated earlier, I stopped watching when he left. I believe his return is good for the NBA. Most players look forward to playing the Wizzards now, not just because it used to be an automatic W in the column, but because it's their chance to play against the GREATEST man who ever played.
 
2001-11-10 02:31:10 PM
Hockey is random to people who don't know how to follow the action. You have to pay attention, which is too difficult when you are stuffing your face and trying to keep the brats from running up and down the aisles.

Skwidd, my youngest daughter loved to go to hockey games here in Maine. Granted, it's the AHL, but she enjoyed the hell out of it. She started going when she was only 10, and I always had to get front row center ice so she could see their faces mushed against the glass. Good times.
 
2001-11-10 02:49:07 PM
maybe some of you should get your tongues outta Michael's ass and realize that the man does not have the magic he once did.... he is not half the player he once was and it looks embarrasing.
 
2001-11-10 02:52:34 PM
hmmm, Ham, that's where the beauty of the sport is, randomness. Unlike baskteball, or football, or baseball, almost all of the plays are different. That's why soccer and hockey are so beautiful and entertaining.
 
2001-11-10 02:58:10 PM
But I sooooo like the taste Augie.
 
2001-11-10 03:02:41 PM
Squinth: Some kids can actually sit still and watch a hockey game, but they are few and far between.

But front row tickets? Those are the worst! The best seats (IMNSHO) are center ice, middle tier. In the front row you can't see anything that isn't happening in front of you.

Even worse, all the yentas who have season tickets for those spots spend the whole game yapping at each other, knitting sweaters and not supervising their screaming children. They even miss the goals. "Oh, we scored? Yaay! Anyway, I was so disappointed when Brenda got those mauve curtains. They clash with the bedsheets!"

But maybe that's just where I am. Regions differ...




I'm currently marooned in SC, so this is who I go to see.

 
2001-11-10 03:08:06 PM
Front and Center at the Portland Pirates is pretty cool Skwidd. I loved taking her. I enjoyed the games, but I mostly enjoyed watching her. She was always a precocious child, and extremely funny. Sadly, (for me, not her!) she's now a senior in high school and off to BU next year. But maybe she can get me tickets to a BU Terriers game!! College hockey's great too!
 
2001-11-10 03:15:27 PM
Squinth: Hmm, you must have better glass up there in Portland. Everything got all distorted when I tried to look up and down the ice through the glass in Charleston and in San Diego (Go Gulls!). I can't afford to sit up front in my hometown of St. Louis, so I don't know how that is.
 
2001-11-10 03:23:25 PM
I don't know what to tell you about the glass difference Skwidd. We were always able to follow the action just fine. The prices for front and center in Portland is less than $15. It cost more for food and beverage than admission. Then you add in the jerseys and pucks and it starts to add up. Still, we had great times.
 
2001-11-10 03:24:05 PM
Holy crap boldman! Sorry!
 
2001-11-10 03:40:22 PM
Go Caps!
 
2001-11-10 05:07:35 PM
Didn't this used to be a basketball thread? =)
 
2001-11-10 05:22:36 PM
Yup. Happens all the time!
 
2001-11-10 05:37:11 PM
Augie, maybe you should pull your own head out of your ass for a moment and attempt to comprehend what we're saying. We're not saying Micheal is a good as he used to be, what we're saying is that at 37, he's still pretty farking spectacular and we fully expect him to get even better the more he gets back into the groove.
I suppose you can still fark for hours now like you could when you were 20? Yeah, right.
What we're saying is that while Micheal's not playing like we're used to seeing, it's still a pleasure to watch the man play b-ball. By the way, elegant use of the idiom. I deploy my toungue in no man's ass, you arrogant bastard.
 
2001-11-10 05:51:51 PM
Ham, have you ever been to a hockey game live ?
There is no comparison, TV coverage BLOWS.
Give yourself a treat and catch a live hockey game, OOOOOOooooooo like boxing, football, ballet, and soccer all rolled into one fast game.

BTW GO SHARKS !!!!
 
2001-11-10 07:36:34 PM
TV coverage is ok, it just doesn't do the game justice.

Didja see Domi whup some ass the other night? W00T!

GO BLUES!
 
2001-11-10 07:53:01 PM
Doofus: Firstly, let me start out by stating I agree with you, and that what I'm about to say is not a personal attack on your character.

But you really, really look stupid when you defend Michael Jordan and spell his name wrong. Twice.
 
2001-11-10 07:53:54 PM
Domi could whip Mike's ass.
 
2001-11-10 08:12:47 PM

Michael Jordan is THE MAN, and by far the best basketball player of all time. I wouldn't say that his performance thus far is "embarrising" by any means. He has not played professional ball for quite some time, his team is mostly low caliber players, and they need to grow as a team. Doofus pretty much summed it up in his boobies.

I'm not real big on basketball, but I am big on MJ. Geeks and sports....*sigh* If you asked a hardcore sports fanatic his opinion on how to recompile your kernel, I'm sure you hear lots of nonsense...just like most of this thread's content:) I look forward to seeing more of Mike this year, and I'm sure that with time he and the team will improve tremendously.

As for Hockey...ummmmm...just not enough scoring. But once in a while you get to see a couple of guys really slug it out. That's kinda cool I geuss.

 
2001-11-11 03:11:49 AM
109-100????? WTF??? It must have been 4 on 4 with empty nets. Wait a minute, I thought Washington was the Capitals! And Golden State?

Oh wait, this is basketball.
 
2001-11-11 06:28:08 PM
Just to continue this thread (not that anyone's reading it today...): "Michael Jordan missed his first 14 shots on the way to his first four-game losing streak in 11 1/2 years. By the end of the game, all he could do was laugh at his own misery.

Jordan scored a season-low 16 points -- making just five of 26 shots -- as the Washington Wizards lost to the Seattle SuperSonics 99-84 Sunday."

Gotta love starting the game 0 for 14!
